Some People React That Way. Really?!

Well girlfriends, let me tell you, yesterday was not the best day for me.  I woke up a pound less today...O.K. that was good. Yesterday I went to the doctor to get my IUD.  I had no idea that I should have not driven myself.  Well the procedure was taking a little too long & she was having trouble getting thru my cervix.  Then the clamp on my cervix fell off, yeah, ouch.  Then I started to feel dizzy & passed out, so she had to stop the procedure.  She said some people react that way.  Really?!  Anyway I rested there, drank water & ate some nabs.  I did learn a few lessons from the whole ordeal.  1) my blood sugar tends to run low, so I should have eaten lunch.  2) I should have taken Advil.  Next time I try it I'll make sure to do both.  So I am gonna try it one more time next month.  I could barely drive home...probably shouldn't have because I was feeling week & nauseous. Do any of you have problems with a vasovagal response?

I was done for the rest of the day.  Came home & went straight to bed, after having a Pepsi, that is...I know, I know.  It did help me feel better and I slept for about 1.5 hours. I did follow it up with a healthy dinner, turkey breast and baby lima beans with Crystal Light pure fitness .  The rest of my family had toast as well.

QUESTION OF THE DAY:  Do you like Crystal Light pure fitness?  If so, what's your favorite flavor?

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Be healthy. Be strong.

Take care,


  1. WOW Cat! Yikes! I only took BCP, never did the IUD but it doesnt sound like it was much fun at all. What about the ring or the shot? Just a thought. Might be easier to handle.
    Hope you are feeling better today. Take care girl!

  2. HI Cat. Sounds like you had an eventful day. I never had the IUD either. I used to take BCP's. I have never tried that Crystal Light. I see that it has Stevia and sugar in it. What is the sugar grams per serving? I wonder why they put both sugar and stevia in? I guess it tastes better. Hope you are feeling better today!

  3. Just curious what seemed to restrictive for you on the bfc? Is it the need to count sugars in fruits and veggies? I'm not judging whatever works for you is great, have a wonderful day.

  4. What a day at the docs, I had one a zillion years ago but don't remember anything like that.
    I have never drank stuff like that on the BFC. I just drink water.
    Have a good day :-)

  5. No IUD's for me, that sounds like a bad experience. Yuck. And I've never tried the Pure fitness, either.
    I like to steam my eggs because it makes them WAY easie to peel - the shell practically falls off, once you crack both ends and roll them on the counter.

    I'd also love to make blackberry crumble - blackberries are one of my favorite fruits ever. I'll have to formulate a recipe for that - YUM!

  6. Hey Katie, it was mostly the counting & I like to eat unlimited fruits & veggies. I may pay more attention to the sugar level when I hit a plateau.
